Add A Carry Clip To Your Multi-Tool And Ditch The Pouch

The popular way to carry a Leatherman or multi-tool is in a pouch that sits on your waist. For an everyday carry style, attach a metal clip that still allows you to open and close the tool.

Leatherman pouches are functional, but not exactly stylish. They also take time to fiddle with and make it obvious you are carrying a knife. Makers have been modding their pouches for years, but this clip might just be the most elegant solution.

Start with a Leatherman Surge or large multi-tool and 1/4″ cold rolled steel metal rod. Bend and cut the rod into the clip shape needed, then weld the ends of the rod onto the Leatherman on the open side.

After welding on the clip, your multi-tool won’t open. To remedy that use a coping saw with a metal blade and cut through the middle of the clip.

When finished, your Leatherman will slide easily into your pocket and be held in place by the clip.
